I am interested in the marks we make. How do you and I move? How do we sense each other through space? What vibrations do we create? What is the space between us? How are we like a flock of birds or a school of fish?
When I paint I am dancing—improvising with the other dancers—the trees, grasses, light, earth, water and air…
Painting can be a ritual for me. There’s something about laying out my colors and mapping the forms and movement of a place that is like an invocation. I invoke the spirit of a place.
My work spawns from my duel practices of being in the moment as I paint directly from life and from my practice of deep dance improvisation. As I strive to capture motion and be the motion, I hope to engage the viewer in some aspect of the intimacy of creation.
